If you are looking for one-stop shopping for gift cards this year, you may not have to look further than your local CVS.

All you need to do is look for the card rack — you will often find it close to the cash registers, usually on an aisle's end cap. If you don't see it when you first walk in the store, just poke around. My local CVS has it tucked in one of the back rows, where I'm sure it spends most of its time between holidays.

Just so you know what's available before you head out to shop, here's a rundown of what you can expect to find. Be aware that selection varies by region and availability.

You have tons of options for gift cards. When I went there to make my list of what's available, I was actually surprised at how many different kinds they had. I'll group these lists into types, so you can get a broad overview.

3-Packs

If you are planning on giving the same type of gift card to several people, you could look into getting a pack. These are great for giving out at work, school, or church.

Some packs I saw:

  • Subway (3-pack of $10 cards)
  • Applebee's (3-pack of $15 cards)
  • Chili's (3-pack of $10 cards)
  • Starbucks (3-pack of $10 cards)

Visa and American Express

And finally, if you still can't find a specific gift card that your recipient would like, you can always opt to purchase either one from Visa or American Express. These can be used almost anywhere and are loadable for values between $25 and $500.

Just keep in mind that unlike cards for specific stores and restaurants, the American Express and Visa gift cards have activation fees. For AMEX, the fee was $5.95 to purchase. For Visa, check the racks carefully. For some reason, they had a range of activation prices between $3.95 and $5.95.

        If you spend $75 you get $15 store credit. Are all cards in this deal? The cashier did not know the answer?

        Anyone have any trouble with these cards? I purchased an Applebee's 3 pack, got home a few hours later and decided to double check the balances before placing them in the Christmas cards for my son's teachers.

        From what we could find at Applebee's website, only 1 of them had a valid balance. The other 2 showed as Inactive. I called the 800 number on the back of the cards, but because I purchased them at a 3rd party retailer they were not able to help and gave me another number to call, which unfortunately is not staffed on the weekends.

        Any ideas what I should do next? We intended to give these cards out Monday.

        Great idea and one I have not considered. I love this gift card idea of yours as I'm in and out of CVS all the time. They have some really cool stuff too!

        Gift cards give the recipients the options to choose the gift they would otherwise buy. So, nice idea.

        CVS does have a terific selection of gift cards. Gift cards are pretty much the way to go this year. You can't beat the convenience.
